Fingerprints Music

El Rey is the 2008 album from indie-rock veterans The Wedding Present, their first studio album since Take Fountain, released in 2005. This is the first collaboration with the legendary Albini since the renowned Seamonsters in 1991. The band returned from an eight-year hiatus in early 2005 with the release of Take Fountain which brought them back into the spotlight with all the style and sophistication associated with a legendary group, but fans were pleased to see the band had lost none of the growling angst with which they had burst onto the scene with their 1985 debut, George Best. El Rey was written while David Gedge was living in LA and it burns with West Coast sunlight; Tinsel Town seen through the eyes of a gritty Northerner. The band line-up is David Gedge (guitar & vocals), Terry de Castro (bass), Graeme Ramsay (drums), and Chris McConville (guitar).
